IAEA may inspect 'no secret' Iran nuclear facility: Ahmadinejad

The International Atomic Energy Agency may inspect Iran's newly revealed nuclear fuel facility, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said on Friday.

"We don't have any problems with (IAEA) inspections of the facility," Ahmadinejad told a news conference in New York. "We have no fears."

Ahmadinejad said Iran was also hoping to buy enriched uranium for medical purposes from any country willing to sell, and was hopeful that Oct. 1 talks with Western powers concerned over its nuclear program would help decrease tension.

"No secret"

Ahmadinejad said US, Britain and France would "regret" accusing Iran of hiding a nuclear fuel facility, saying it was not a secret site.

Ahmadinejad, speaking at a New York news conference, said Iran had informed the International Atomic Energy Agency early about the facility, which the Western leaders on Friday labeled a direct challenge to the international community.

"It's not a secret site. If it was, why would we have informed the IAEA about it a year ahead of time," Ahmadinejad said. "They (the United States, Britain and France) will regret this announcement."
